Re: MyLinks 3.11 RC2 Ready for Testing

@btsec,

Thank you for the report. Here is a solution to the issue you're seeing:

in ./admin/main.php around line 820 you will see:

$imgurl $myts->htmlSpecialChars($catObj->getVar('imgurl'));


please replace this line with:

$imgurl $myts->htmlSpecialChars($catObj->getVar('imgurl''n'));


EDIT: I forgot to also give you the fix for the frontside. In ./index.php change line 55 from:

$imgurl $myts->htmlSpecialChars($catObj->getVar('imgurl'));


to:

$imgurl $myts->htmlSpecialChars($catObj->getVar('imgurl''n'));

May I also suggest for a better way to edit links instead of having use link id, a drop down list of links which when one is clicked opens in edit mode or a similar solutions like tdmdownloads module list all entries with an edit button to the side of each entry.


Yes, this feature is in the next revision (v3.12) along with a lot of other improvements. Version 3.12 is currently in alpha testing. Once I fix the existing bugs in v3.11 and update the code required for the thumbshots.com support I will release v3.11 and then finish version 3.12.

Re: MyLinks 3.11 RC4 Ready for Testing

Very soon you should be able to see the announcement of the RC4 release. Please test this new release so we can get this module to a FINAL stage with as few issues as possible. Here's some of the text repeated from the news release:

This is an RC release, please do not use it on a production site!

This is intended to be a short release cycle before 3.11 FINAL. Please test the RC4 changes as soon as possible to verify the problems identified in the RC3 release have been corrected.

Code changes since v3.11 RC3:
  • fixed category image display bug

  • changed editor selection to use XOOPS Preferences editor

  • changed error handler since XOOPS ErrorHandler class is deprecated in 2.5.4+

  • changed shot (thumbnail) provider to use classes:
    - added Heartrails thumbnail provider
    - added PagePeeker thumbnail provider
    - added ShrinkTheWeb thumbnail provider
    - added Thumbalizr thumbnail provider
    - updated Nemui thumbnail provider
    - updated Thumbshots thumbnail provider to new API

  • removed duplicate _AM_MYLINKS_IGNORE in nederlands translation


  • Backup your existing site before installing/upgrading any new XOOPS module.

    Good progress, Jim!

    I think, it would be nice to have an option to overwrite it in Preferences, i.e. when being installed, the module take it from the XOOPS current default, as set by the Admin, but after that, the Admin could set it individually for each module.

    And back in XOOPS Preferences, it would be nice to have an option to override the default for all currently installed modules. But this would have to wait till XOOPS 2.6.0

    Why would an Admin want a different editor for each module?

    This is what will happen if "all" modules use the XOOPS Preferences setting. At that point if the admin wants to change the editor, they can change it in one place and the modules will start using the 'new' default editor...

    It's just the extra flexibility for our users

    For example, in a situation, where you give module access to users, but you don't want them to use the Editor you're using as an Admin.

    You can add the option directly in the module's Preferences:

    - editor for Admin
    - editor for Users

    or we can look into ways that we could set it up by Group directly in XOOPS or module Admin.

    One way or the other, it would be nice to have a set of Options in Core (incl. things like Editor), that could be set by Group in a more granular way.

    I agree. Setting editors by modules doesn't make much sense to me, but by group - well that's a completely different story!

    Re: MyLinks 3.11 RC2 Ready for Testing

    What is the Template Management: My Links?

    Do not think it is superfluous since it is managed by the system? :)

    I would remove that part of the module in admin

    Re: MyLinks 3.11 RC2 Ready for Testing

    @timgno,

    Templates management, blocks management and permissions management have been removed in the next version of Mylinks (v3.12). Management of all of these will be available using the XOOPS 'standard' method instead of using a module unique method.

    I think the permissions are needed

    Re: MyLinks 3.11 RC2 Ready for Testing

    Thank you for your work zyspec.
    Finally, what is the latest version? 3.11 or 3.12?
    I would like to test and translate into French the module. Can you put the latest version here?
